While a whole food diet is recommended and we always say to avoid gluten free alternatives all the time as the starches they tend to use make them a bit more unhealthy. I always say go ahead and use them every now and then if it keeps your gluten-free and smashes those cravings. Some are actually quite healthy if you pick the ingredients right but there is a gluten-free option for everything you used to eat i even have a list....I mean everything from fish sticks, cheese sticks, instant pasta dishes, breads, pizzas even bloody hot pockets. Here check out this list of everything think of it as just changing brands, I even have places to shop and get things listed and how to order them at your local grocer with a list of UPC codes.

Usually I eat sweets cupcakes and things like that ... even if I have a little bit I get really sick sweating stomach cramps so bad I feel like I'm pass out or possibly have a seizure  and my husband says it's like I have a food stroke... because afterwards my sentences run together and it's like I'm having a stroke or drunk... I know my symptoms are awful and I know when I eat it it will happen I just get so overwhelmed and every time I think I'm safe it's got something hidden ... so I'm always like this is how my life will be but my doctors are saying that's not a options because I'm having really bad symptoms and been hospitalized for seizures and stuff recently

Where I live there is an AMAZING gluten-free bakery with awesome cupcakes including, peanut butter cup, s'mores, and others. When I was eating gluten-free my co-workers requested I bring them in for birthdays  even though they could have had regular cupcakes. The bakery also makes a lot of other stuff. Do you have anything like that in your town? Or somewhere nearby? You could probably buy a few things and put them in the freezer. But if you're anything like me they won't stay there very long!

Give yourself time.  My hubby was told to go gluten free some 16 years ago by two medical doctors.  It worked.  But he cheated a lot the first year.  It was hard on him.  But eventually he found that feeling well is better than  feeling like crap.  

I found that we both (I was diagnosed years later) adhered to the diet when we planned our meals and snacks.  I never leave the house without some food.  I always have goodies in the freezer to take with to parties and other social gatherings.  

You can do this.  It just takes time.  If you stick with it, you may find that your doctors gave you good advice (I just hope they ruled out celiac disease first).  

Take care.
